Here’s the latest addition to my DOODLES page.
I haven’t been doodling lately, but this one I did in a public sketch book at the Kava Bar I frequent.
The “Love Sound” written in the roots was done by a close friend of mine.
“There is Nothing to Fear My Love… My Love…”
I performed a few weeks ago at the Little Haiti Cultural Center close to the Design District in Miami, FL.
This piano caught my (eye) and got an urge to play it. But I guess that would’ve been ‘trespassing’? I still would’ve gone for it had I not been rushed to leave the premises after they closed.
Excerpt and illustration by Kahlil Gibran in his masterpiece, The Prophet.
“And ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.”
The other day I came to a conclusion about my doodles and life, respectively.
I was making mention to my dear friend that I realized how I actually don’t like to doodle in pencil. Why, you may ask? Well, I figured that by drawing in pencil, I am more tempted to erase, undo or ‘regret’ any mistake I may have made. When I draw in pen or marker, then I am compelled to work around the mistake, accept it, change it to the best of my ability, and transform it for the better. When drawing in pencil, then my genuine intentions change. I then want to ‘perfect’ every line, every curve, every detail. And I won’t ever really be satisfied because there will always be a slight smudge that gets in the way.
And as I’m stating my stance on the tools that I prefer to use for drawing, something clicked in my head.
My brain began to compare life with a drawing. We cant undo or erase what we did yesterday. Regret? Perhaps, but who wants to walk around with pockets full of regrets? Nobody, really… but many people do however. In life, whatever choices we make become permanent. But It doesn’t mean that they define us since there are many ways of adjusting, repairing, transforming, etc. The smudges I previously referred to, those are like obstacles. We cant avoid them. But we surely can overcome them, learn from them and become aware of them whenever they pop up.
What are you life analogies?
The other day I went to a hookah bar with a friend of mine. We discussed philosophy, books, religions, awareness, dreams, energy-related topics, family issues, Ramadan, etc… It was an awesome time.
As we’re getting ready to call it a night, I headed for the bathroom. When I walked in, I almost forgot I had to use it. I was so busy looking at their ART WORK. And guess what? I took pictures! I gave my own titles but unfortunately don’t have the artists’ names.
Check them out!
Which one is your favorite? I have two- Alien Head and Kicks and a Pop
Over the weekend, I decided to create two new pages to my blog.
Doodles was made to show off my drawing skills, or the opposite rather. But I thought it would be a cool idea to show you guys my NOT so talented side, a side of me that I’ve always wanted to develop but chose other artistic mediums instead.
Watcha Listenin To? was created to add something fun to the mix! I’m a huge music fan and I love music from around the world. I wanna know what everyone is listening to. It’s more of an interactive page, and I truly hope you guys are ready to PLAY!!
